No I don’t consider defense a skill. If it was Vucevic might be a passable defender by now but he’s not. He has improved his shooting skill though. 

And now looks like Isaac is out indefinitely with little explanation. I thought this was an ankle sprain. 

Dude.... Getting Isaac right is about getting his diet right and letting him actually get older... The kid can't keep weight on right now. During his 1st stint on the injured list he got sick and lost 11 pounds.... He needs time to grow into his body.

LM is just a few months older than Isaac. Why is he playing so well and Isaac can’t stay on the floor? He was picked right after Isaac. I mean, just because Isaac is a good defender right now I’m supposed to be impressed? I’m way more impressed with LM.

In other words, a project.

I'm with you 100%. We drafted a potential project instead of an NBA ready player, again!

This might be the first guy who needs ankle development time before he can play

The problem with Isaac is he is still growing... That is a major factor in all of this 

He just has weak ankles.  It's not unusual.  Wade has some sort of ankle strengthening program he bought into to prevent some of these things from happening and I'm pretty sure that's the program that helped curry with his.  

At the same time this should be moderately concerning that he can't stay on the court.

I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see Isaac until February.

They're going to build strength in his legs and probably his upper body too, but it sounds like after tweaking his ankle the second time, they're are concerned that this could happen again.

Isaac is very thin and lacks overall strength. This might be one of the smartest moves they've done in a while.

Definitely a concern hopefully it is all sorted..
